Department of Finance
Question 113: To ask the Minister for Finance the estimated energy use of his Department in 2008 and 2009 and to date in 2010; the total cost of that energy use in each of those years; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [44939/10]
The estimated energy usage for the years 2008, 2009 and 2010 for my Department are listed in the table below. Also listed in the table are the actual spend on energy costs for the years 2008 and 2009 and the total spend to date in 2010.
|2009||1,1415,671 units (ESB)92,490 units (gas)18,653 units (oil)||â'¬477,643|
|2010||1,092,477 units (ESB)87753 units (gas)6,001 units (oil)||â'¬310,073 (paid to date)|
* The meter system currently used to count the energy consumption came into effect mid-way through 2008. It is therefore not possible to give an accurate reflection of unit costs in 2008.
